Police call for help in guarding Muslim cemeteries


There are 427 Muslim cemeteries in the Crimea and the Crimean police have sent a letter to city and district administrations speaking of the need to find money to pay for civil security for the graveyards in cooperation with the local police.

A statement from the Public Relations Department of the Central Police Department in the Crimea says that in order to avoid provocation coming up to 18 May – Remembrance Day for the Victims of the Deportation of the Crimean Tatar people, the Acting Head of Police Mykola Illichov has sent instructions to Crimean Ministry of Internal Affairs bodies to look into finding cover for each graveyard. The statement stresses that district police stations in outlying villages must make protection of these cemeteries a priority.
